At The Grove Dental Care, our private dentures are made with a high impact denture acrylic (plastic), which means the dentures we make are less likely to break when they are dropped. However, no denture can be guaranteed against breakages. We therefore recommend you follow some simple steps to reduce the likelihood of damage occurring to your dentures. Dentures should be looked after carefully.
Your dentures (false teeth) are breakable, so always clean your dentures over a bowl of water or a folded towel in case you drop them. It is extremely important that your dentures are kept moist and are not allowed to dry out, this is to prevent them distorting. However, if your dentures become dry please soak them in a glass of clean fresh water before wearing your dentures again.
Some patients prefer not to wear their dentures at night. In this instance, please place your dentures in a box with a damp tissue or into your preferred denture soak. If you use a denture cleanser overnight, please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use. Dentures should be rinsed and cleaned on a regular basis.
